Question by Tray C: What to buy someone for the 25 Wedding anniversary?
My cousin is throwing her parents a surprise wedding anniversary party at a restaurant. I have never been to such an event, what should I buy them? They say something silver but my mom says silver plates are horrible to clean... Any ideas?

Silver is traditional, but these days, rarely does anyone do anything traditional, and to be honest, that stuff sits on a shelf somewhere and just gives them something to dust. Sorry, I'm being curmudgeonly but practical. Get them a nice gift certificate for a dinner out, or a night at a nice hotel, or tickets to a show or concert, or spa treatments. Give them a gift for something they can do together and share the memory.

    It doesn’t have to be real silver, silver colored is fine. You can probably find a silver photo frame just about anywhere, or just get them a $ 50 restaurant gift card.

    It doesn’t have to be real silver, the kind that has to be polished. You could get them a nice silver colored serving bowl, a silver bell, a silver photo frame, a nice candle holder, etc. Hallmark stores and Things Remembered have things just for 25th anniversaries.
